We began the planning process for Kristin and Brett’s wedding with her mother, who was invested in the details from afar. It was during our first conversation that it was clear they had strong ideas about their vision but needed someone to pull it all together into a cohesive story about K&B’s relationship and their families. While it can be fun to dream up a wedding story from scratch with no limits, I thrive on curating a wedding that is perfectly tailored with my clients input and convictions. Wedding planning is stressful when you don’t stay true to your personal style and traditions, but can be fun and exhilarating when we celebrate those little details in a big way.
The biggest planning challenge was that Theater on the Lake was only available for one Saturday during the warmer months: Air and Water Show weekend. This could have been a huge deterrent for hosting your wedding there, but with a little (lot) of planning behind the scenes, it proved itself to be a perfect weekend for celebrating on the lake! When recommending vendors, I was careful to not only consider those who would be a great fit for their style and needs, but also who would be able to be flexible and thrive under the increased pressure of a million people on the lakefront during venue set up.
I could talk about Kristin and Brett and their planning process all day, but I will leave it to the photos to showcase this incredible A+ team who helped bring all of their wishes to life.
